    I agree. The cost of boarding will be more than offset by the Vet bills you will avoid. DH's Dad is obviously not receoptive to instruction, so it is your only hope of keeping this critter healthy.

    At least all the feral kitties will be keeping the rodent population down. It would be best if you could trap/neuter/spay and give them some rabies vaccs ASAP though. Good job on moving the mini, although it is a bummer you have to.

    The OP has already stated in a previous post that "Oliver" is being moved to her home this weekend.

    Why bother reading all four pages?

    Glad you got it sorted out, Hunterkid. At the end of the day, Grandpa seems like a gruff and a bit grumpy old guy with a huge and soft heart.
